12:00-12:50 p.m. - "Dred Scott" The Curious Case of the Abolitionist Congressman that Refused to Free His Slave, and Caused a Civil War" CLE presented by Kirk Nystrom, Nystrom Law Office

Imagine if you will, learning that the most famous slave in the country, was actually owned for years by a U.S. Congressman, who ran for office as a dedicated abolitionist!  This slave's quest for freedom took him to the U.S. Supreme Court, unsuccessfully.  The ramifications of that case prompted a backwoods lawyer to successfully run for president.  And the outcry from the case, helped fuel the most violent conflict our country has even known.

$20 for TBA Members
